The Bedlam Farm Open House, Coming Together

Kim came by this morning and dropped off her Vintage button inspired felted purses and wallets.  A sheep and owl, the moon and flowers.  All hand embroided with Kim’s original designs. The owl has a heart button right at his center and the sheep has a flower in her mouth.  I can still remember seeing the moon, just the thinnest sliver of light and the planet (which one, I’m not sure) to its left.  The next day Kim started making the wallet that’s now in the Open House.

Then, this afternoon, Brad from A&M printers called to say that Mary Kellogg’s new book, “How to Dance” was all done.  We started working on Mary’s book over six months ago, but somehow it was a last minute rush to get it printed in time for the Open House.  Mary will be reading from it on Saturday and Sunday I’ll be selling her book and so will Battenkill Books.  Mary will be glad to sign her books too.

I just have some labels to make and  hang and take care of those things that don’t get done till the day before.  Then I’ll be all read for the Open House.

  1. I can’t come to this open house, but would love one of Mary’s new books – autographed if possible. Can you set one aside for me to send after you’ve recovered from the Open House? Let me know how much for the book and postage. Thanks, Donna
